The Nigerian Police arrested at least 20 miscreants for allegedly stealing phones and other valuables at Eagle Square, the venue of the PDP convention.
It was informed by policemen and men of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps that almost 50 phones suspected to have been stolen were recovered from the hoodlums.
A policeman, who identified himself as Sunday, said, “A large number of youths just came here to steal.
“We have a temporary room here where we have detained about 20 touts. In fact, there is no space anymore.
“We’ve been able to return some of the phones to their rightful owners. Some of the phones are IPhones.
“Most of the stealing incidents took place at the gate. The touts deliberately created confusion at the entrance and used the opportunity to dip their hands into people’s pockets.”
